    9:00 am - 3:00 pm

    Have you ever wondered how to actually use the NIST Cybersecurity Framework and apply it to your business or organization?

    In this course, you will get an inside look at how cybersecurity, information technology (IT), and business professionals use the NIST Cybersecurity Framework (CSF) to understand and actively manage their risk posture.

    You will begin by learning the fundamentals of the NIST Cybersecurity Framework, including:

    • What are the components of the framework?
    • Why is the framework is valuable?
    • What type of organizations can use the framework?

    Then, you will dive deeper into the framework to fully understand the Framework Core, the Framework Tiers, and the Framework Implementation Profile.

    You will also review various case studies from diverse organizations across the globe, including critical infrastructure organizations, technology companies, governmental organizations, and others.

    Finally, we will spend the majority of this course walking you through how to implement this framework within your own organization by conducting a Cyber Risk Mapping (CR-MAP). This CR-MAP of your organization will aid you in identifying your weaknesses and creating a remediation plan to achieve higher levels of security by minimizing your cyber risk.

    We even include a free bonus digital workbook that helps you conduct a step-by-step Cyber Risk Mapping at the conclusion of the course.

    Identifying the Current Threat Landscape
    Registration Level:
    • session level iconOpen Sessions
    11:10 am - 11:55 am

    Like the main character in the 1981 horror movie, An American Werewolf in London, cybercriminals continue to morph into something evil, lurking in the night (and day) to cause harm to people, organizations, and governments. Cue the Creedence Clearwater Revival song, Bad Moon Rising.

    The cybersecurity community is smart and more than capable of thwarting bad actors, fangs and all. They have tools, technologies, partnerships across private and public entities, and solution vendors to help them along the way. Don’t forget about the consultants working hard to stay ahead of those wanting to do harm, as well.

    Hear our panelists’ views on the current threat landscape, solutions they have to offer, and ideas they have for turning a bad moon into a harvest moon.

    Securing Your Cloud Environment

    • session level iconOpen Sessions
    1:15 pm - 2:15 pm

    Can you “imagine” if The Beatles, when first starting out, had to deal with having their catalog of music hacked, stolen, and held for ransom simply because it was in an unsecure cloud setting? While it is possible for that to happen with their hit-laden collection of songs today, it’s merely a tiny example of how businesses operate at a minimum in a hybrid cloud environment—many in a cloud-only platform.

    With that comes security issues and another major area which cybersecurity professionals must work diligently to protect.

    Our panel of experts share the good, the bad, and the ugly of operating in a cloud environment, what it takes to make the move to hybrid or multi-cloud successful, how to protect data from insider and outsider threats, and what it takes to provide the support DevOps teams need.
